Rice launches redesigned website

Rice University‘s website has a new look as of Dec. 1.

According to the official announcement, the new look is “designed to improve usability, highlight key news items and more closely align with the university’s identity guidelines.” The new look doesn’t differ much from Rice’s old site. It’s more evolutionary than revolutionary. But that’s not a bad thing. They’ve kept some of the features from the old site in the updated version and they’ve made it cleaner and easier to navigate. Nice job.

  1. What captures my eye on this site is the small print — the footer notes that it’s both 508 and W3C compliant. Impressive feat for a dynamic site. Any sense of percentage of higher ed sites that are hitting these marks?
